I shot this photo a couple of days ago when I was out getting a skyline shot. I had been searching for a vantage point from the east side of town looking west and found a 6 or 7 story high parking garage. My first attempt at getting in the garage was unsuccessful, as the stairwell at the front entry was locked. I kept looking around and saw a walk way between the garage and the building it was attached too, so I checked it out. The walk way led me to a side entry to the garage and from there I found another stairwell at the back corner, thankfully this one was open!
Once I got to the top of the garage I set up and quickly started shooting photos. I figured at any time I could get kicked out of there, since people from their offices could see me. At first I was just shooting the downtown skyline, then I noticed the sun was shinning on the mountains in the NW direction. Just then I started to feel a few rain drops! I quickly ran over to the other end of the garage to get the right vantage point and shot a few frame before it started pouring. Got this one just in the nick of time! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
